Based on the communicative approach, and drawing on the best of current thinking and practice, face2face prepares students for real world communication. The presentation and practice of vocabulary and grammar are of equal importance and there is a strong focus on listening and speaking with an emphasis on 'real world' language for social situations. The listening and reading material provides fresh new angles on universal topics and students are given numerous opportunities to practise new language through a wide variety of communicative activities, many of which are personalised. face2face is also fully compatible with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and gives students regular opportunities to evaluate their progress. Full mapping to the CEFR is available online, as well as in the relevant Teacher's Book.
